Beans, it's wonderful to read the good news about Raven and also the Toyota!   :thumbup:

It looks as if Raven will have a special new home and excellent care.  He'll be a good ambassador and teacher when he's ready to be an education bird.   :eclove

I was gone when the news about CRC winning the Toyota was posted.  They certainly will put it to good use!   :nod2

Wonderful news beans!  He is a busy little guy. :ecwink He will be happy in his new home.  :biggrin6

Is the story of his vision here somewhere?

No, I haven't talked about him until now.  Was waiting until I knew he would be transferred. 

A new baby Raven (who is self-feeding) came in last week at Lindsay.  When education Raven leaves, baby will be moved into his aviary after it is thoroughly cleaned.  I'll post about him in the Lindsay thread. He's releasable, so I won't be playing with him --  but I'll make sure he has an interesting variety of food around his aviary and lots of clean water for drinking and bathing.

I have Raven Fever and there is no known cure.  :ecwink

I'll take pictures of our Raven, after he's settled in at Cascades Raptor Center. 

I'll see him two more times at Lindsay (Tues & Thurs) before he leaves.  I'll get a picture of him there, too.

Thank you so much Beans, for your work with the Raven. It's great to hear that he has a new, wonderful, careing home and be taught to participate in an educational program.  Your work, time and efforts are appreciated. Thanks again ... :ecsmile

beans, I am so pleased to read about the Raven being ready for his new home. I think you have become fond of him and while happy is going to a new home, you'll miss him.

Will you get to assist with the new raven?

I started working with the new Raven today.  We want to keep him wild, and at the same time he needs to trust those of us who feed him.  He's very young, a fledgling, and the inside of his beak is pink.  :eclove

Well, good news from CRC in regard to our Raven!  I received an email from Louise Shimmel this afternoon, and I don't think she would mind my sharing it with you:

Quote
The raven seems to be doing quite well!  Yesterday, while Rachel was still here, he actually came out of his kennel and onto the upturned crate (we set him up just like he had it down there) Rachel gave him a lot of water from a syringe but he wasnt too interested in meal worms. He vocalized a lot; today not so much just a little and softer. He was still in the doorway of his carrier this morning early but by 9:30 or so was up on his high perch?  (We have a ramp from next to his feeding platform up so he found that.)  I saw him lean out of his carrier this morning and drink water (I found him some white bowls!)  but not eat so far, though hes taking mealworms from the hand.  He seems totally unphased by having a half a dozen or more visitors surrounding his enclosure, and is preening and stretching.  Id like to see him explore to the other end of his enclosure (hes got a long perch from where he is) but for now Id be happy if I were sure he knew how to get back down to his food and water.  I just sent a volunteer in to hold his water bowl up to him and see if hell eat some.  But just wanted you to know that he seems to be adjusting!

Of course, I knew he would be in good hands with her and her staff.  Still--  it was very thoughtful of her to take some time during her very busy day and send me this update.   :eclove

Beans, that was very thoughtful of her to send you such a nice report about Raven.  He really will do well with that kind of care.  I hope all goes well and that he can fulfill his new role as an education bird when he's ready to do it.   :eclove

Ohhh in my mind's eye I can see him thrilling the children and adults with his expressions, and perhaps antics. Lol

He has a lot of personality!  Hopefully, all of his Affection Training will help him be an excellent Education Bird.  I'm so glad he wasn't frightened by the people around his aviary.  He has no reason to be fear people because he has always been treated with kindness, patience, respect, and love.
